Why is it good for my garden? Tall Oregon grape is a great evergreen plant for hedges or just a specimen in your garden. Bright yellow flowers bloom early in the year and the color is appreciated at the time for us but is used for food by early pollinators. Birds enjoy the berries and you can too. Best way to eat these that we have heard is in jam and pies.
